One of the most crucial pieces of your roof is the flashing. Because it flushes away water and debris from your house, instead of down your wall, in your plumbing pipe, or down your chimney, it’s imperative to know the status of it. Throughout seasons, the house foundation and structure can shift and settle, which has the potential to cause issues with the roof and walls intersect. The material your flashing is made out of will determine the maintenance that is required, should something be identified and require repair. An easy identifier to know your flashing may need looked at is looking for any discoloration on any areas in the home, such as drywall or a skylight.

Give Weight to the Inspection

We understand, roof maintenance, repair, and replacement can get very expensive. In the midst of buying a home, it’s easy to overlook the suggestions marked on the inspection as “not too bad” and deem them to be tended to at a later date. However, it’s important to understand that if there was something worth mentioning by the roofing inspector, it’s worth noting and looking into. Problems that are left unattended for any length of time can cause serious issues down the road. Also, your homeowner’s insurance policy will take into account the age and condition of your roof. So if you choose to avoid the problems when they’re minor, there’s a chance they can flare up and cost you a lot more. Don’t wait to make the repairs a professional suggests.
